Cinderella search

Finding the right slipper is more difficult than you'd think. In fact, it's like the opposite of Cinderella.
They tried that slipper on hundreds of girls before finding the perfect fit. I've tried hundreds of slippers, but never quite discover my idea of perfection.
This is a very British thing, I know. The rest of the world probably thinks we're weird using footwear to spank naughty bottoms with, but in the days of school CP it was the entry-level spanking implement of choice at most schools.
So it is very much part of my spanko psychology. You misbehave, you go to fetch the slipper. The problem is that in my experience you just can't get slippers that do the job properly.
Now if you haven't tried it, a good slipper punishment is quite something. For me it's as satisfying as good fast food - other meals may be closer to art, but fast food is just what you need when you need it.
A good slipper smarts like the devil, reddens efficiently and makes a big, scary sound. It doesn't leave much in the way of marks (good if you're off to the pool tomorrow) and it is an innocent object to have sitting around the bedroom, although a pair is less likely to raise suspicions than just the one.
But not every slipper has it in it to be a spanking slipper. Many are called, but few make the grade. Most are way too light and have been made using the wrong sorts of materials.

For me it has to be a thick rubber sole with a smooth surface and just the right amount of upper - not too much, not too little. Plimsolls and sports shoes are so wrong, as are anything suede or with man-made fur on it. 
In my experience it's easier to find a sandal that packs a good spank, but then a sandal isn't really a slipper, is it? Eventually, I'm sure I will go to the ball - I'll find the slipper that is exactly the one of my dreams... and in the meantime it is a good excuse to go to shoe shops.


  1. Hello there, OFG. I'm glad it's not just me who obsesses about this stuff. Being a fan of domestic scenes, the slipper and the hairbrush loom large in my fantasy world and they have to be 'just right' to do the job.

    I agree about plimsolls - unwieldy, inflexible things that it's hard to grip comfortably. As for hairbrushes, many of the new ones are made of some ridiculously light and flimsy wood and quite unsuited to their purpose. I mean, what do they think we're going to do with them - brush our hair?!

  2. Hi Underling

    Nice to 'see' you. I'm glad I'm not the only one that obsesses about the right sort of slipper. And don't get me started on what people try to sell as hairbrushes - there should be some sort of official standard for weight, durability etc


  3. Good luck on your quest, OFG! Cos if anyone deserves a good slippering, it's you. ;)

  4. I guess it is mostly a British thing, and yet the sole of the shoe, slipper, or sandal, though relatively uncommon, was an implement used for spanking when and where I was a child---that being the Western U.S. Unlike the cane, of which I was ignorant, I was well aware of what you're referring to here as slipper punishment. I don't think it was ever used at school, however.

    I think an item of footwear can make an excellent spanking implement, but agree one must be selective. I wouldn't choose a sports shoe or some other types I've seen. Nothing is more disappointing than a spanking with an ineffective or inappropriate implement.

  5. That's it, disappointment. The slipper or hairbrush looks just right and then whack! all noise, but no follow through. It shouldn't be allowed - there should be a law against it.

  6. What do you think about the "Superga" Slippers ?
